Today we are delighted to announce details of the new EP from the ever prolific, irresistibly charming and admirably talented Gorgeous Bully.
For those who haven’t been with us an awfully long time, Gorgeous Bully (the moniker of musician Thomas Crang) has been a mainstay of the AIH family. Whilst based in Cornwall he first cropped up on AIH05 (a compilation of bands from the SW). He then moved to Plymouth and January 2012 saw us releasing his debut EP 'The Young Obese'. Fast forward to November 2013 and with a 7" EP under his belt, Thomas is now based in Manchester.
Whereas earlier material saw Thomas playing everything himself, 'Nobody Hates You As Much As You Hate Yourself' marks the first outing from Gorgeous Bully as a full band. Having spent the last 12 months playing up and down the country with the likes of Joanna Gruesome, Cymbals and Throwing Up some recorded output from the full band was long overdue.
The addition of a full band has certainly aided Thomas's ability to craft self aware, self inflicted ditties. Across the EP's further four tracks, expect a celebration of misery, loneliness and self-loathing, perfectly molded into three minute grungey pop songs that celebrate the freedom of not doing what is expected of you
2012's Gorgeous Bully EP was released in a cigarette style package that sold out on pre-order alone, for 'NHYAMAYHY' we have tried to come up with something just as visually appealing. The EP is set to be released on January 6th on cassette, in a hand-stamped box that contains a lyric sheet, badges, a bottle opener/lighter, a download code for an MP3 version as well as a further secret EP.
If you would prefer just to have the MP3 version then you can purchase it from our Bandcamp and receive a download of the full EP straight away ahead of the February 17th release date.
Please note we cannot send the flammable bottle openers abroad and to reflect this missing element have lowered the postage cost.
